Pasta Primavera

  • 1 cup broccoli florets (about 1 crown)

  • 1 cup sliced carrots (about 3 medium)

  • 1 cup macaroni or spiral-shaped noodles, uncooked


  • 1 tablespoon flour

  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine

  • 1 cup skim milk

  • ¼ teaspoon dried basil

  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese

Rinse broccoli florets with cold water. Place broccoli and carrots in a steamer basket. Place steamer basket in a saucepan filled with 1 inch of water. Bring water to a boil. Cover saucepan and steam broccoli and carrots approximately 2 minutes.

Add zucchini and continue steaming all vegetables until tender-crisp, about 2-3 more minutes.

In a small saucepan, melt butter or margarine, blend in flour. Gradually stir in milk, basil, and pepper. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sauce thickens. Remove from heat and blend in cheese.

Pour sauce over hot vegetables. Add macaroni or spiral-shaped noodles to vegetables and mix together.
